Imperial College and Leading Edge Forum, Join Forces to Help Kick Start Executives into Doing Disruption

Today, Imperial College London, a global ten university and the ‘home of innovation in London‘ and Leading Edge Forum (LEF), the preeminent IT research and thought leadership company, announced combining forces to deliver a cutting edge Executive Education programme on how to spot, combat and win against the forces of digital disruption.

As the digital revolution gathers momentum, business leaders are increasingly talking about Disruption and how to deal with it. This intensive two and a half day programme will focus on executives’ inability to recognize disruption when it is afoot in their industry, the potentially fatal business consequences of this and practical methods for countering and leading your own disruptions.

Mark Kennedy, Associate Professor of Organizational Behaviour and Strategy at Imperial College said: “This is a topic which has to be understood and so by combining forces with the LEF we are able to provide real insight, practical hands on experience, for example in our Data Observatory, as well as classroom based learning to impact the executives who come on this course. It’s going to be a great learning, and potentially business-changing, experience for all.”

Through this joint programme, LEF brings both its future sensing input and practical experience of working with the world’s leading organizations on their digital transformation strategies. Attendees will benefit by being able to not only hear from our experts on many aspects of disruption we see in the market, but also to spend time exploring their thinking with them during the two and a half days.

Richard Davies, Managing Director of LEF stated, “This is a unique opportunity to hear from many of our team and Imperial’s Professors all in one place, and experience both organisations’ practical ‘labs’ which will get inside the heads of executives, hence the word ‘doing’ in the course title. Personally, I’m really looking forward to it.”
